Hello, @balajimandavathe information you have provided is not enough to give an answer.


Still, I will try to provide you with several tips that can help solve the problem.


The first reason may be related to the antivirus or your organization's security policy.


The second - check your permissions before running any scripts. User Account Control can be the reason for the problem. Here you can find a step-by-step guide to troubleshoot the problem. If that does not help, try to find the answer in this thread.
